Australia❜s Best Meat Pie Is Found In Country Victoria - Again!

One of the best things to do on an Aussie road trip is to taste the local cuisine, and we all know that means MEAT PIES! My theory is that the smaller the town, the better the meat pie, which is why it's no surprise that Australia's greatest pie can be found in the little old town of Kyneton, hidden away in the Victorian Macedon Ranges.

Australia’s Best Pie
Sink your teeth into Australia’s Best Pie!

The Baking Association of Australia held its annual pie and pastie competition early last year and the crown of Australia’s Best Pie went to Country Cob Bakery for the third year running!

In 2019 it was their Caramelised Pork and Pepper Pie which took the glory (developed by bakery co-owners brothers Ryan and Chan Khun, in a nod to their Cambodian heritage.) In 2020, their flaky Pepper Beef Pie took out the crown, making it the current champ. The 5 times gold medallist was also deemed Australia's Best Flavor Beef Pie.

Best Australian pastie again went to Jo Jo’s Gluten Free Goodies, also in the small Victorian town of Kernot. Their roasted vegetable pastie also took out the best gluten-free pastie category.
